Facts About HeatShield®

Your chimney’s flue is an often overlooked but very important component to your fireplace. A properly functioning flue is the means by which smoke and waste gasses produced by your fireplace are expelled out of your home. Occasionally, it falls privy to gaps, cracks, spalling as well as many other types of wear and tear. This leads to the potential for dangerous gasses to leak into your home. Naturally, it’s important to ensure that any damages to the flue are promptly repaired. The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) recommends yearly inspections in order to catch these unnoticed problems. In recent years, a viable option for many facing these kinds of repairs is HeatShield® Cerfractory Sealant. Read more…?
